I stayed July 8th - the 13th, upon arriving the desk clerk was very slow and seemed to be agitated by something. The building reeked of cigarettes and wet clothes that had been sitting around for days. I later found out it was the manager who was at the desk. I checked in and as he was checking me in he became very frustrated and threw the key card on the counter as it was not taking the activation. I then proceeded to my room and looked around and the bathroom shower was absolutely disgusting, the floor looked like it hadn't been swept and the top blanket had a burn hole in it. Thank goodness I took a shower at the last place I was staying. I would have checked out and found another hotel to stay at had I had the money, this was the worst place I have ever stayed and will not recommend to anyone unless the employees are retrained along with the housekeeping staff. The following morning I politely asked for the shower to be cleaned and upon returning to my room the only thing that appeared to have been done was the bed was made. To whomever owns this place please make the changes otherwise you are going to loose business quickly and possibly be shut down.

I'm just going to make a list: Smells like cigarettes even though it's non smoking, stained bed sheets, beds are sunken in the middle, broken and burnt out light fixtures, toilet leaked so it would randomly fill throughout the night, weird giant water stain in the bathroom, gross coffee maker that still had coffee grounds and water from previous guests, AC wasn't working in the lobby when we arrived, no breakfast even though COVID restrictions have been lifted.
Positives would include friendly staff and it's cheap. You get what you pay for.

Stayed on April 2, 2021. There were 2 groups ahead of us at check in. Check in was very slow. During 2nd group check in, first group returned, demanded another room because the original one had some one sleeping in it, and was dirty. Manager had to explain to very stoned assistant 3 times which room to check for unauthorized occupants. Finally got our room, which was at the other end of the building. Drove around, parked. Went in through rear guest door. The corridor smelled-, no it reeked--, no, it FUGGED of marijuana smoke. Security lock on door of our room was missing. Light switch next to door did nothing. Other switches worked, but fixtures were not properly attached to walls. Sheets were clean, no sign of bedbugs. Went to bed. Awoke at 3 am to overpowering odor of air freshener. It was strong enough to make my eyes sting. In the morning, the shower drain didn't work well, and built up 2 inches of water during the course of a short shower. As we were taking our things back to the car, we realized that the rear door to the building could not be locked, as the striker plate was missing. We will not be staying again.

We only stayed at this dump because it was one of two that were dog friendly in this town. We drove up from Florida to pick up a puppy in PA in the town next to Meadville. It was horrific! Both my husband and I were freezing in the room and it was August! The temperature was set at 50 degrees! What they call a blanket was probably what they use in jail. The room was run down and nasty. The boy at the front desk was totally clueless. Our room was in the back by a door to the outside that would not stay closed (broken).
Will never stay again

Dirty, floors were disgusting and faintly greasy, nothing felt clean.
Security was awful -- back door hanging open every time we entered or left hotel even after closing it, deadbolt on room was disabled, front desk person was not present and front door propped open one night.
Noise was bad throughout entire stay from guests. Thin walls, lots of loud hallway traffic at all hours. Lovely 3:22 am soap opera between a fighting couple who insisted on arguing in the hallway for half an hour provided the nighttime entertainment.
This property used to be operated by a different hotel chain, and it was clean and nice under prior management. Current management appears clearly uninterested in offering a safe, clean, restful stay to its guests.
Meadville is poorly served in terms of number of hotel rooms in the area, and it's often hard to get a room there when I travel for business or to see family. If there are no other hotels in the area the next time I have to travel through there, I will drive the extra 45 minutes up to Erie or down to Cranberry rather than stay at this place. I have stayed in bad hotels before, but in terms of the combination of high price and low quality I'd rank this as the third worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
